Every so often, Ratalaika Games likes to throw a curveball our way. Typically know for their cutesy and brightly coloured ports of retro looking games, they have also given us the likes of Gutwhale and Even the Ocean. Their latest release also doesn’t fit the mould. Road of Death is out today on Xbox, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation.
Road of Death has you wandering a land contaminated with radiation. As a result, the organisms have mutated, and many have evolved into predators. You are tasked with preventing the impending doom that will occur if nobody does anything by doing anything you can to survive.
You will need your wits about you in this 2D shooter, mixed with survival and rogue-like elements. Pitch a tent, light a fire, turn on or off your flashlight, do what you need to do in this area and then get out as quickly as you can.
Road of Death also features:
- 8 Levels and an endless survival mode
- Purchase upgrades at the store
- Different playable characters with different skills and weapons
- Post-apocalyptic pixel art
- Intense rock / metal soundtrack
- Your starting position changes with each game
- Day / night cycle
One thing hasn’t changed however: Road of Death will still include the customary easy achievements.
Available to download now, Road of Death will cost you £4.99 on the Xbox Store. Those that prefer to speed on the roads can bag themselves a discount down to £3.99 for a limited period. Our review is coming soon, once the sat nav gets us back onto the right road.
Road of Death is a 2D shooter with elements of survival and rogue-like. After a terrible accident at the local nuclear power plant, huge areas of land were contaminated with radiation. Under its influence, many living organisms were mutated and became very aggressive. Now the whole world is in mortal danger. We’ve selected the best personnel to handle the situation, and you are one of them. Your task is to get through the entire zone, perform various tasks and prevent a new impending disaster. Turn on your flashlight, pitch a tent, light a fire, and do whatever it takes to stay alive. On the way, you expect many enemies including hideous mutants, as well as heavily armed combatants who arrived in the exclusion zone to steal secret documents. But you can’t forget the invisible threat of toxic nuclear radiation!
